Does this look like a fine degree?

  1. So yeah I was gonna apply to this uni until I stumbled at their EE curriculum which is as follow:

    I'm not very expert, but you know wish to know the expert opinion in this regard

    Calculus I
    Calculus II
    Calculus III
    Linear Algebra
    Differential Equations
    Numerical Methods
    Probability and Statistics for Engineers
    Introduction to Chemistry
    Mechanics and Waves for Engineers
    Electromagnetism and Optics for Engineers
    Programming for Engineers
    Engineering Economy and Cost Analysis
    Materials Science and Engineering
    Introduction to Electronics
    Foundations of Electrical Engineering
    Electric Circuits
    Digital Logic Systems
    Signals and Systems
    Communications Theory
    Microelectronics
    Computer Networks
    Control and Feedback System Design
    Computer Architecture
    Electrical Energy Conversion
    Applied Electromagnetic
    Electric Power Systems
    Digital Communications
    Electrical Engineering Capstone Project
    5 × electives


    the plan during the 4 years study will be like:

    1st semester:
    Programming for Engineers
    Introduction to Chemistry
    Calculus I
    Mechanics and Waves for Engineers

    2nd semester:
    Materials Science and Engineering
    Calculus II
    Electromagnetism and Optics for Engineers

    3rd semester:
    Foundations of Electrical Engineering
    Calculus III
    Linear Algebra
    Differential Equations

    4th semester:
    Introduction to Electronics
    Electric Circuits
    Digital Logic Systems
    Numerical Methods
    Probability and Statistics

    5th semester:
    Signals and Systems
    Computer Networks
    Computer Architecture
    Applied Electromagnetic


    6th semester:
    Communications Theory
    Microelectronics
    Control and Feedback System Design
    Electrical Energy Conversion
    Engineering Economy and Cost Analysis

    7th semester:
    Digital Communications
    Electric Power Systems
    EE Elective
    EE Elective

    and the 8th semester:

    Electrical Engineering Capstone Project
    EE Elective
    EE Elective
    EE Elective

    their electives are:

    Special Topics in Electrical Engineering
    Wireless Communications
    Digital Electronics
    Communication Electronics
    Nano electronics
    Digital Signal Processing
    Digital Image Processing
    Power Electronics
    Antennas and Wave Propagation
    Optical Fiber Communication Systems
    Opto electronics
    Microwave Engineering
    Renewable Energy
    Digital Control
    Modern Control Theory


    Unfortunately, I don't see a dedicated physics courses at all!
    And I hope there aren't any important missing subjects

    In general what do you think is the good, the bad, and the ugly in this course?

    Thanks!

    This looks like a very standard engineering curriculum; the general physics is covered here:
    . Mechanics and Waves for Engineers
    . Electromagnetism and Optics for Engineers

    This is equivalent to the first year of any general physics curriculum. Your engineering courses will then introduce any additional physics that is required as you go along. You will certainly learn about waves, and quantum mechanics will be mentioned in your solid state devices.

  4. Thanks a lot for clearing some ideas for me.
     
  5. Do they not make you take any communications or writing classes? Being able to write a well-reasoned persuasive argument is a good skill to have. At least as important as any single other class beyond the fundamentals.

  6. They have English 1 & 2. and Technical Writing. These should cover the topics I guess. Thanks for the note.

    BTW, I would really appreciate it if some could recommend some good community colleges which I could later on shift into a computer engineering program.

    Thanks

    Michigan has a very well developed community college system. If you were to start at Washtenaw Community College you would be only 15 minutes from the University of Michigan's engineering campus.

    The same would be true for most of the other engineering schools in Michigan, though Michigan State and Michigan Tech (among others) also have good programs ... if you like fishing, hunting, hiking, or winter sports - then pick Michigan Tech. Go Huskies!
